a south. he wrote the obituary of martin luther king that non-violence was dead, it was rejected, martin luther king couldn't defeat -- and the story really was that the kennedy administration wanted carl sanders to win in 1962 and there was a federal injunction that was placed on martin luther king. so we weren't up against lori pritchett in georgia. we really had to take on the federal government and we chose not to do that. jack always seemed to understand that we were not a problem. i used to quarrel with the new york times quite a bit because i think they were being polluted by information they rear getting, distorted information they were getting and they would come to talk to us like we were the ones that created all these problems. jack never did that. jack understood where the problem was and i always saw him as a friend. anything he ever asked me, i knew i could answer him candidly and truthfully and there would be no downside to it and there were quite a few, actually those days were rough on reporters. in 1964 in mississippi the abc reporter who was the first one to suggests

of montgomery buses ensued. this catapulted a young martin luther king jr. into national leadership and ushered in the modern civil rights movement. one year later, montgomery's buses were desegregated. but despite parks' placement in that story, we rarely see the story and its surrounding history from her perspective. hidden in plain sight she is the symbol, but rarely the story. parks has been awarded the nation's highest honors; congressional gold medal, presidential medal of freedom, the first woman and second african-american ever to lie in honor in the nation's capitol. next monday, february 4th, on the centennial of her birth, the post office will issue a stamp in her honor. but despite these honors, her legacy has too often been reduced to a simple act by a quiet seam stress on a single day. that fable of rosa parks is used to show how far we have come, to put the history of the civil rights movement firmly in the past. her quietness is celebrated over and over and over again. particularly because we are in this historic space where she made this stand, it seems fitting to return to tha
